Every generation writes their own history.
Grade 5 Social Studies is based on the history and geography of the Western Hemisphere, including the development of cultures, civilizations, and empires; interaction between societies; and the comparison of the government and economic systems of modern nations. It also incorporates elements of archaeology. The course is divided into seven Key Ideas that cover a time span from prehistory into modern times. Students are evaluated through a variety of instruments including observations, tests, problem-solving processes, group discussions, projects, activities and homework.
